'The stories, poems, art, etc. help students get a clearer understanding of the plight of the mentally ill. It also addresses the problem of differences in learning styles. Some students may learn more effectively by reading the stories; whereas, another student may learn more effectively by looking at the artwork, watching the movies, or reading poems. - Lola Lehman, MSN, RN, Southeast Missouri State University
